P08452: Fault Detectioin in Rotating Equipment for Energy Industry/public/
Project Shift in ScopeDue to issues on securing a donation compressor that would provide an adequate machine for a meaningful senior design project (from Dresser-Rand's point of view) and operation in a college environment, the fault detection project has been put off until future notice. The current project will now shift its focus to the installation and modification of a Dresser-Rand built compressor.
New Project Details
- Modify compressor design from 5 stages to 2 stages and provide (re)designs of parts and pieces in order to complete this action.
- Decrease outlet pressure condition to 100 psi for suitable operation in college environment.
- Reduce inlet power requirements from 75 HP to around 38 HP for an easier implementation by RIT.
- Consider impact the compressor will have on the
college learning environment.
- Acoustic Levels that doesn't impede classroom activities.
- Vibration impact on fabrication of parts in the machine shop.
- Safety surrounding operation and maintenance of the machine.
- Knowledge of the compressor for easy hand off to other projects.
Status of the Donation CompressorCurrent status is that the Ingersoll Rand N30 compressor is available for donation. The compressor will need a "tune up" of components and to be checked for proper operation. Dresser-Rand will assist with hand off to RIT and safety measures to be taken during operation. The room for installation of the compressor has been verified and is suitable for install/operation after slight alteration.
